Re: Alien Nation fans?

The show certainly has its share of hokey moments typical of American television from the late 1980s, but it's also a highly ambitious sf program that, despite that ambition, never took itself too seriously. It's a shame Tim Minear's revival didn't take off a few years ago; the concept has tons of potential and with the slightest of revisions would only be even more relevant today than it was twenty-five years ago.

My opinion of the movie has mellowed somewhat in the past five years, but it's still not a great realization of its premise.
